The course will be facilitated by Andy Goldring
Andy has been thinking about and practicing permaculture design since his first design course in 1993. He has used permaculture in many different contexts and with lots of different groups. After training he helped with permaculture projects in Leeds, community projects and private home/gardens, and national projects as a volunteer with the Permaculture Association. For the last 11 yrs he has been the coordinator of the Permaculture Association, which gives him a good overview of permaculture in Britain and the context within which permaculture is operating.
Andy has been teaching permaculture since 1995, and has been involved in many design courses and numerous introductory and specialist trainings since. He has been lead tutor on at least ten design courses, including the last 5 years’ of Leeds PDCs, co-tutor on the 2009 Earth Activist Training course with Starhawk, and the 2010 Permaculture Educators Course in Denmark.
He has contributed to many books and magazines and was the editor of ‘Permaculture – a teachers’ guide’

Andy will be joined by Cathrine Dolleris
Cathrine took an interest in permaculture for the first time in South Africa in 2000 while working with Zulu farmers, and has studied and applied permaculture principles in her later work in Nepal and Vietnam. She has also worked as a consultant evaluating and documenting rural development projects including permaculture projects and Farmer Field Schools.
Cathrine attended the Permaculture Educators' Course at Friland in autumn 2010 and has since helped to organise the Nordic Permaculture Festival and started teaching permaculture introduction courses.
Cathrine will be the assistant facilitator on the course.
Andy and Cathrine will be joined by an experienced team leading a full day of practical activities.
